Is tank rehabilitation serving its purpose?

Posted on Posted in Agriculture, GIS solutions, News, Satellite Remote Sensing, Water Resources

Tanks are an important source of irrigation. Artificial or natural, tanks are used for harvesting and preserving the local rainfall and water from streams and rivers for later use for various purposes including agriculture and domestic. For serving the purpose, tanks require regular maintenance, revival, and restoration which includes frequent removal of silt (desilting). Also, […]

Satellite remote sensing: An aid to curb farmer’s suicide

Posted on Posted in Agriculture, Crop insurance, News, Satellite Remote Sensing

Being an agrarian country, 48.9% of Indian population directly or indirectly depends on agriculture (Economic Survey 2014-15)1. A total of 12,602 farming sector persons (8,007 farmers/cultivators; 4,595 agricultural labourers) has committed suicides during 2015, accounting for 9.4% of total suicides victims (1,33,623) in the country (National Crime Records Bureau statistics, 2015)2. According to Milner, Spittal, […]

Psychology behind the low penetration of crop insurance: Satellite remote sensing to the aid

Posted on Posted in Crop insurance, News, Satellite Remote Sensing

Factors like the natural disaster (flood, drought, earthquake), climate variability (hail storming, heavy rainfall), pest’s attack, scarcity of water, inundations, financial aid etc. puts agriculture at risk. These factors lead to the apprehension of stress that may resist a farmer’s ability to take decisions for any sort of long-term crop management investment. Having had experience […]

Publication: A Spatio-Temporal Algorithm for Merging Soil Moisture from Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing

Posted on Posted in Agriculture, Algorithm Development, Disaster Management, Environment, Geospatial Modelling, GIS solutions, Mathematical Modelling, News, Satellite Remote Sensing, Validation of satellite retrieved variables, Water Resources

Currently the soil moisture is available either at coarse spatial scale from passive microwave remote sensing or at infrequent repeat time from active microwave remote sensing. A novel MAPSM algorithm is developed which merges Active and Passive microwave Soil Moisture to obtain a higher spatio-temporal soil moisture which is a prerequisite for various hydrological, agricultural and […]
